When An Elderly Man Falls In China

On 26th Nov. 2013, an elderly man fell while crossing the street in Jinghua, China.

A few passersby stopped their bikes and formed a circle to prevent other riders hitting the man. The man tried to stand up by himself, but failed. People stood around looking at each other, but no one dared to help the old man stand up. They called police and ambulance, and after examination. it was found that the elderly man had no serious injuries.

Some Chinese are loath to give assistance because of incidents like the one below:

Earlier this month, two high school students helped an elderly man up from his fallen bicycle, but the man accused the two students of knocking him down and demanded they pay for his medical expenses. The parents of the students paid 1200 yuan ($200). These two students then posted an online request for witnesses. A shop owner and some customers who saw the fall went to the police to give evidence. The old man had to return the money to the two students.

Navarro Appointment Signals China Relationship Will Not be 'Business as Usual' PDF Print E-mail

The appointment of Peter Navarro, a strident China critic to lead the incoming Trump Administration's newly formed National Trade Council, sends a clear message that the U.S - Chine relationship will not be 'business as usual' after January 20th, 2017.

 

The author of "Death by China" and "Crouching Tiger: What China’s Militarism Means for the World" has for years warned that the US is engaged in an economic war with China and should adopt a more aggressive stance. Navarro says that China engages in currency manipulation and abusive trade policies that are hurting the United States.

 

He blames Beijing for the loss of 57,000 American factories and 25million jobs through spying,manipulation and destroying American lives by flooding the US with illegally subsidised and “contaminated, defective and cancerous” exports.

 

The Trump transition team described Mr Navarro as a “visionary economist” who would “develop trade policies that shrink our trade deficit, expand our growth, and help stop the exodus of jobs from our shores”.

Trump during his campaign repeatedly said that China is ripping off the United States, and he threatened to impose a 45 percent tariff on imported goods from China.

“I read one of Peter’s books on America’s trade problems years ago and was impressed by the clarity of his arguments and thoroughness of his research,” President-Elect Trump said in a statement. “He has presciently documented the harms inflicted by globalism on American workers, and laid out a path forward to restore our middle class. He will fulfill an essential role in my administration as trade adviser.”
